Aerial Force in Worthing
At the foot of the South Downs in West Sussex, lies the large seaside town of Worthing. Steeped in beauty, the town is popular with many people wanting to reside near to the sea, and it has recently been estimated than an incredible 104,600 people live in Worthing! Worthing has been around for a vast length of time, and it has been suggested that the area has been populated for a minimum of 6000 years. It contained the greatest concentration of flint mines existing within the stone age, in Britain and – from about 4000 BC, the South Downs was Britain’s largest and earliest location for flint-mining.
The iron age hill fort of Cissbury Ring, is now part of the national trust, and it has been estimated that this existed around 5000 years ago! It is one of Britain’s largest hill forts, allowing visitors to feel like they are participating in history. Since those very early days, relatively little is known about Worthing’s history, though we are aware that it was mostly known for being small mackerel fishing hamlet until the final years of the 18th century.
During these years, Worthing developed into a Georgian seaside resort which was often frequented by people well-known in society, and the wealthy! This made it an attractive and fashionable spot, and really enhanced Worthing’s reputation within Britain.
Some of the well-known figures in history that worked and resided within the town include the writer Oscar Wilde (famous for novels such as ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ and short stories like ‘Lord Arthur Saville’s Crime’). ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ was eventually made into a film and this has graced our cinemas since the turn of the century. Another famous literary artist who lived and worked in Worthing was Harold Pinter, who wrote the plays ‘The Dumb Waiter and the Room’ and also ‘Ashes to Ashes.’ These writers represent the culture and beauty that attract people towards the seaside town.
Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Worthing was one of Britain’s chief market gardening centres. It is also proud to boast three different cinemas, and the visual arts are clearly important to the character of Worthing as they seek to preserve the past and cultural history that it has become known for having. The ‘Dome Cinema’ for example, has now become a grade 2 listed building which means that they are of particular interest and that every effort needs to be made to ensure the building is preserved.
Aerial Force combine our forces with the residents of Worthing, to ensure that they receive the latest services associated with home entertainment. Contemporary society often merges past histories with current technological innovation, and the residents of Worthing (and visitors to the region) enjoy visiting the town’s splendid range of attractions during the daytime (and when the weather suits!) whilst enjoying home entertainment within the evenings and rainy weather. We love to hear the stories from the people of Worthing, and are happy to help serve them with the entertainment that they desire.

More about Worthing
A seaside town as classy and elegant as Worthing naturally has a range of attractions to keep visitors and residents amused at all times. As we have already mentioned, the Dome Cinema is a must-see for lovers of films, as it has enough history and respect to have earned the title of being a grade 2 listed building. It is now amongst the oldest serving cinemas that still exist in England today, and was built during the Edwardian era. As the cinema is on the sea front, it is an amazing place simply to view and take photographs for tourists.
Other attractions that are available in Worthing, include the ‘Worthing Museum and Art Gallery’ which houses one of the biggest textile and costume displays in England. Worthing is certainly not short of its cultural attractions, and the Marlipins Museum provides further evidence of this. As also previously mentioned, Cissbury Ring – which is now owned by the National Trust – merges culture with history as it was one of Britain’s largest hill forts. Once more – this is another must-see for all visitors!
The High Salvington Windmill is an interesting site for industry lovers, and visitors can go to become educated in Worthing’s historical industries. The windmill, incredibly, is still in full working order today and takes advantage of the sea winds that come in.
For other forms of entertainment, Worthing has a Gala Bingo, a ‘Splashpoint Minigolf’ and ‘Brooklands Go Karts’ which is sure to entertain your children when you are arriving on holiday! There is also a ‘Worthing Lego Club’ which occurs on a weekly basis and allows visitors simply to come and build Lego with like-minded people. If walking is more your thing, of course a visit to the seaside is important, but there are also the ‘Highdown Gardens’ which offers beautiful scenery.
